Abstract

We investigate spatial instabilities (induced by small angular perturbations) of counterpropagating waves in nonlinear distributed feedback (DFB) structures. We determined the DFB-structure threshold length at which an absolute instability occurs and a nonhomogeneous spatial intensity distribution is generated. The evolution of the transverse intensity distribution is studied for counterpropagating waves as a function of the control parameters.
